Little Mix made X Factor history last year when they became the first group to win the show. They were also the first girl group to do well in the competition after previous ones had failed to make it past the initial weeks. Perrie, Jesy, Jade and Leigh-Anne were put together during the boot camp stages of the competition and went on to win over the nation with their tight harmonies, bright personalities and impressive work ethic. As the group release their debut single Wings, they’ve also just released their first official book Ready To Fly.
Ready To Fly is a mixture of photos and text detailing the band’s rise to fame from the individual girls’ formative years through to the present day. Packed with stunning pictures by Dean Freeman (most famous for his work with the Spice Girls and David Beckham), the book is a colourful hardback with plenty to sink your teeth into.
Split into three sections (Life Before X Factor, Showtime, Life After X Factor) the book contains stories from each of the girls about their lives and experiences to date. In the first section there are plenty of photos of the girls as children showing what they looked like as babies and following their growth into teenagers. Each of the girls recalls their introduction to music and the realisation they wanted to become singers. As the book progresses they talk openly about their experiences on The X Factor and share their hopes for the future of Little Mix.
At the back of the book is a series of quick-fire questions allowing fans to get to know the girls even better. Hardcore fans of the group will pride themselves on storing up all the tidbits so they can impress with their inside-out knowledge.
Ready To Fly is the definitive guide to Little Mix and provides loads of back story on each of the girls that their fans will love. As brightly coloured and sparkly as the girls themselves, the book is a must-have for any Little Mixers out there. The sky is the limit for these four girls and Ready To Fly documents the first part of their incredible journey. We suggest you get yourself a copy so you can tell people you were a Little Mixer from the very beginning.
